Made in the traditional method from a small block of Chardonnay in the Vasse Felix Karridale Vineyard, located in the south of the Margaret River appellation. This unusual section of Chardonnay stands out for its unique structure and flavour profile; both suited perfectly to the Blanc de Blancs style.
Good finishing winter rains with moderate spring conditions resulted in excellent canopy health. The summer ripening period was dry and warm with some above average heat in late January prompting an early start to harvest. The weather tempered in early February and the fruit ripening slowed to a more typical pattern resulting in a long and steady vintage. Continuous fine weather remained through to mid-April when harvest completed for reds.
